MANILA -- ABS-CBN has postponed the airing of the newest soap of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, but not because it is disappointed with the program.

Bong Osorio, head of ABS-CBN's integrated corporate communications division, said the Kapamilya network has decided to delay the airing of "Got to Believe" until enough episodes are canned.

He maintained that ABS-CBN "is just as excited as the viewing public for the airing of 'Got to Believe.'"

Below is Osorio's full statement released on Friday:

"The management of ABS-CBN is just as excited as the viewing public for the airing of 'Got To Believe.' There is no truth to speculations that the airing was postponed because management was disappointed with the program. In fact, the TV series starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernado thrilled and impressed the management. In as much as management wants to air it, it has decided to postpone the airing until enough episodes are canned. ABS-CBN firmly believes that "Got To Believe" will offer a new experience to TV viewers and looks forward to airing it soon."

Initially set for a July premiere, "Got to Believe" is the second primetime soap of Bernardo and Padilla, with the first being the top-rating "Princess and I."
